AAAS has applauded the announcement of three additional U.S. science envoys: past AAAS President Rita Colwell, former AAAS Board member Alice Gast, and Science author Gebisa Ejeta. The announcement was made by Senator Richard Lugar (R-Indiana) at the request of Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.

The three new science envoys “will travel to South and Southeast Asia; Africa; and the Central Asian/Caucasus region in coming months,” Lugar reported.
